Capt’n Crompton’s Pale Ale - Epic Brewing, Salt Lake City UT - 5.8% ABV
A solid pale ale, a little more carbonated than I like but good. 3-3.5/5
A harsher taste like is in rot gut or other high ABV alcohols that have not aged. The taste of other barleywines and how it should taste. Also, the guy at the store said this one needs to cellar for awhile.
Basically I am saying he is right. It will mellow and smooth like a cognac.
Old Jackalope Barleywine - Tenaya Creek Brewery, Las Vegas NV - 10.4% ABV
This was just released April 2 2013 and this Barleywine, more than any other, needs to be cellared. It is too young right now but should be good in a year or more.
Chocolate Porter - Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, Redlands, CA - 8% ABV
This is more like a porter. Good chocolate flavor and a slight vanilla bean. 4/5
Second really nice Hangar 24 beer, I must recommend this brewery.
Double IPA - Hangar 24 Craft Brewery, Redlands, CA - 9% ABV
I like this IPA. I seem to really like IPA’s & double IPA’s that use fruity hops. It just, seems to me, the best hop to make any IPA balanced. 4-4.5/5
My first Hangar 24 I should get more.
